A most unusual and stunning album. Tsege Mariam Gebru is an Ethiopian nun who has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been composing and playing music on the piano since the 1960's. Her music is a unique mix of Western classical music in the vein of Erik Satie, Ethiopian music and Religious Christian meditation music. On this reissue of her first LP, originally released in Germany in a very small pressing, we find Tsege Mariam Gebru playing her own compositions solo on piano. She plays with restrained grace and purity. The record invites repeated listening well and is filled with spiritual warmth. Mississippi Records is very proud to present this LP – the first in a series of records they will be releasing with music culled from the monumental Ethiopiques CD series. Old school "tip on" cover.
